Valentine Chex Mix

I know I should have posted this BEFORE Valentine's day, but you could make this for St Patrick's day or Easter just by changing the M and M's and sprinkle colors. It was a hit at the party we had for Kathleen's Bible Study group.
Valentine Chex® Mix
4 1/2 cups Rice Chex® cereal (Beth used Crisxpix cereal)
1/2 cup white vanilla baking chips
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup red, white and pink candy-coated chocolate candies
2 tablespoons red or pink jimmies sprinkles

1.            Place cereal in medium bowl. In small microwavable bowl, microwave vanilla chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth. Pour peanut butter mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated.
2.            Place 1/2 of the cereal mixture in 1-gallon food-storage plastic bag. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper or foil; cool about 15 minutes.
3.            Meanwhile, stir candies and sprinkles into remaining cereal mixture. Spread on waxed paper or foil; cool about 15 minutes.
4.            In serving bowl, mix both cereal mixtures. Store in airtight container.
Makes 11 servings (1/2 cup each)
